The ends of Ireland

Criticism, history, subjectivity

Conor Carville

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Considers the way in which ostensibly radical new theories have sometimes been used to defend very traditional positions
  • Demonstrates how psychoanalytical, postcolonial, feminist and Marxist concepts have been applied to Irish literature and culture
  • Draws on aspects of the work of all the critics considered to advance a new theory of the representation of subjectivity in Irish writing
